A fresh start

As the final minutes of 2010 wind toward midnight, there are probably many people in Kershaw County who won't be sad to see the curtain fall on this year. The economy remained stagnant; jobs didn't bounce back as everyone had hoped they would; the housing market is still in the doldrums; and we suffered through one of the most brutal summers in history. Yet there is hope ahead as we move into the second decade of the 21st century.

Community pride

As we look back on 2010, one cannot but be proud of our wonderful community with all of its heritage, history and opportunities for the future. Two very important aspects of our community which set us apart from so many others are the number of community based organizations and the generous contributors who make up these organizations. One of these organizations, which made such significant contributions to our community over the past number of years, is the Camden Tree Foundation. The foundation, a non-profit corporation founded in 1982, is an all-volunteer organization which during its history has relied upon the ...
